It's not a bad prediction, either. The Red Sox still have a great lineup that should rank in the top five in runs scored among American League teams, but the team also has real concerns throughout its pitching staff.

Boston's odds to win the 2020 World Series are +3000, and it also has +1300 odds to win the AL pennant, according to DraftKings Sportsbook.
There's no question the Red Sox will be an underdog this season, and it's possible they thrive in this role. Despite some of the veteran departures over the last two offseasons, this Red Sox roster still has plenty of championship experience on it.
